Waze Is the First GPS App to Support Carpool Lanes

New is a motorcycle vehicle type option, joining "private" and "taxi", which will offer specialized routing optimized for motorcyclists.

Waze is an app that tends to get new features on the regular, but the update landing today is definitely worth paying a little more attention to. You can use these voice commands to begin navigation, preview the route ahead of you, ask for your arrival time, and more.

Waze is owned by Google but it offers a different experience than Google Maps.

Check out Waze now for more information about its latest update. No matter where you are, it's usually not safe to be trying to study your device while driving to see what's up with traffic or look for a gas station along your route. You can also use "OK Waze" to report traffic jam, accidents, and such.

"Whether you're riding with one passenger or more; in a hybrid, electric, or clean-fuel vehicle; with a special pass; or a combination of all of the above, Waze will determine your optimal route", the company wrote. Unfortunately, this is only supported with English in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Ireland, and New Zealand.

Waze also introduced a carpool mode, available only in the US and Canada, which suggests additional navigation options for high-occupancy-vehicle lanes (carpool lanes).

For example, those riding with a full carpool crew should go to Settings Navigation Add Toll/ HOV pass, and then choose from the list of available passes for your area. You can now include carpool lanes in your route if you're traveling with more than one rider or if you're driving a fuel-efficient vehicle. Those who qualify for carpool lanes because they're driving a hybrid or electric auto must go to Settings Navigation Vehicle Type.

The feature is now supported in Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and D.C as well as Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal.

Drivers using the application's new motorcycle mode will receive route recommendations based on data from motorcyclists. To activate Talk to Waze, just follow these steps: Settings Sound & voice Talk to Waze Shift Listen for "OK Waze" on.
